This is what I had for dinner last night. I love Indian food, so it was only fitting after watching Awake to eat Indian. Click on the pictures for the recipes. Below is my take on it, and it was awesomely delicious. I served it with cauliflower rice.

If you don’t have the spice blends on hand then you can make your own, which is what I did.

This is a delicious Indian inspired dish, and so easy. Layer it in a crock pot, turn it on, and come back six hours later, and voila! Dinner.

Recipe Notes

I prefer to use bone on chicken thighs, especially in a slow cooker, because they will stay nice and moist.

Garam Masala
Tandoori Masala. She too has a butter chicken recipe on her site.

I found a very simple curry paste in this cookbook. How to Make Good CurriesIt called for anchovy paste, which I did not have, but used extra salt instead.
